Maynard, a Middlesex County town with a population of about 10,000, is located 20 miles west of Boston and was built on the longstanding industries that operated there, some for more than a century. The Assabet Woolen Mill provided jobs for the town residents from 1846 until its closure in 1950, while the American Powder Mill enjoyed 105 years of gunpowder manufacturing until it closed its doors in 1940. The old mill complex is now known as Clock Tower Place, which is available to businesses in need of office space or a location to conduct some light industry. The aptly-named building also houses the oldest working hand-wound clock in the country.
But there's much more to Maynard than it's working class roots might suggest. Fine Arts Theater Place on Summer Street, a former automotive business that was converted into a movie house in 1949, has continues to entertain audiences in Maynard and beyond with first-run film showings. Maynard is just a couple of miles away from Acton, home to the Science Discovery Museum, and about six miles from the Walden Pond State Reservation in Concord.
Those in the market for a space downtown might think about something like a 1,000 square-foot three bedroom, single bathroom apartment on Maynard's Main Street. This particular rental has an open floor plan and is equipped with washer and dryer hookups, an eat-in kitchen and carpeted floors and is a relatively modest dwelling suitable for renters who want to live and work in the heart of Maynard.
Over on Dartmouth Street is an example of a more spacious domicile. An apartment situated within a Cape Cod style multi-family home, this lease has four bedrooms, one bathroom and a living room complimented by a fireplace. A versatile kitchen includes an island that doubles as a table capable of seating up to six, and a fenced-in lawn provides access to and from the basement. This more expansive rental is near Community Park and is a short distance from the downtown and Clock Tower Place.
An advertised three-bedroom, one bathroom townhouse apartment on Railroad Street allows residents to take a quick stroll to the commuter rail service, affording worry-free access to Boston. Graced with a sunny living room, eat-in kitchen and a master bedroom with a walk-in closet, a rear porch and yard, this type of lease is ideal for anybody in the market for a nice rental that is within walking distance of all the necessities.
